Early Access Game

Get instant access and start playing; get involved with this game as it develops.

Note: This Early Access game is not complete and may or may not change further. If you are not excited to play this game in its current state, then you should wait to see if the game progresses further in development. Learn more

What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“We believe in the power of playtesting and the value of feedback. Are you passionate about this kind of game? We want to hear from you! Your suggestions and constructive criticism will help us shape its destiny.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“We estimate the game will be in early access anywhere from 12 to 24 months.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The core game is built on three essential components: exploration, adventure, and creation. On that foundation, we'll be adding a variety of new features, systems, and content over the course of Early Access. We're excited to share these with you!”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“The game is fully playable with a decent amount of content, though it's certainly not bug-free. If you're experiencing an issue, let us know and we'll fix it. You can read more about our upcoming plans for the game in our FAQ.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“During the first 15 months of Creativerse’s life, we charged $20 for the game. This allowed us to restrict its audience at a time when we weren’t quite ready for an influx of players. However, we always planned to make the game free as it’s our belief that this will allow us to reach the widest audience possible. Continued development is now being supported by microtransactions. We are making every effort to ensure that in-game purchases are not tied to the core loop of the game -- we want players to enjoy the game without being restricted by any pay-to-win or pay-to-play mechanics.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We're hoping to get as much feedback as possible. Please let us know if you have any suggestions, whether it's a cool feature you’d like to see added or a change to something currently in the game. We've already added many features and changes based on player feedback and have no plans to stop.

Here are the best places to reach us:

Creativerse R28 - Tutorial System and Free Blocks

Hey Creatifriends!

This update is all about helping our newer players get down the basics so they can move onto everything else Creativerse has to offer. You know, like grisly deaths at the hands feet gyrating curves of Hotfoot. Now tips will drop in and guide you through the essentials, like crafting a wood power cell or a processor. If you’re a Creativeteran, these will be turned off for you by default (though you can turn them back on with the console if you’re curious).

We’ve also got a 2 new Mayan-themed block sets available in the store, one of which is FREE! Fire up the store to pick it up at your convenience.

If you missed it yesterday, you can get a visual tour of R28 in this video.

Creativerse R27 -- The Quality of Life Update

UI be a little more helpful. Night be a little less dangerous. Bugs be a little less buggy.

That’s R27 in a nutshell.

Behind the scenes, we moved to a new office, took time off for the holidays and have been laying the groundwork for features that won’t be ready for a while. In other words, we acknowledge R27 isn’t as meaty as you’re used to. R28 will have more stuff!

P.S. We’ve slowly been upgrading our store page over the past couple months -- new banners, screenshots, game descriptions, etc. Let us know what you think!

  • More detail in UI item description
  • Better block placement behavior
    • Added a player “nudge” when placing a nearby block (allows for placing blocks closer to your feet)
    • Improved messaging when blocks can’t be placed
  • Nighttime in forest, woodland, and plains biomes less dangerous
  • Feedback when trying to learn recipes that are already known
  • Compass death skull now pings upon respawning
  • Art - flames added to torch icons
  • Art - Janky House icon now properly a blueprint
  • Rimecones and snow cubes show up when placed on shelves
  • Fences no longer connect to wildflowers
  • Added Hotfoot harvesting sounds
  • Server improvements

Bugfixes
  • Fix for fluid faces not rendering when adjacent to glass
  • Fix for iron gate rapidly opening and closing when in open state
  • Beeswax now an option in custom blueprint block swaps
  • “Ghost block” pulling fixed
  • Lily pads can now be targeted

Early Access Review
So, is this game another version of Minecraft?

yeah, but just wait one minute there..

I HATED minecraft, way too much micromanagement and what not. i would have passed this one by, but it kept showing up on my reccommended lists and it was free, so i figured what the hell.

So i enter the game, figure out how to use the blueprint for a very basic house. i figured i would spend 15 or 20 minutes, then delete the game and forget it forever.... alas this was just not meant to be....

i gathered the materials, built the house, then started a mine and gathered more materials to expand the house... by the time i looked up... 9 hours had passed.... i was like... WTF?!?!? it was morning and i had no clue where the time had gone.

so i get some sleep, my biggest frustration at this point is how the hell to make glass and i go to sleep thinking about it.

i get up around noon, and think i've figured out the glass thing, so i get in to the game to test my theory, and i was right. at this point my house is good sized for a beginner, my mine is getting bigger, deeper. i'm progressing pretty good. so i go check out the store and end up using part of the 450 gold they gave me to buy a great big castle blueprint.

i go about getting the supplies i need to build the thing, build it with a little help from people coming in and out of my game world, amd finally, the thing is built. i look up, its 6am........

my biggest frustration at this point? that i'm inturrupted when i'm playing by the pain in my bladder... the upside... my bladder is getting stretched out giving me more time between bathroom breaks to play.

to say this game is mildly addictive would be a gross understatement. its fun, easy to figure stuff out, and the real challange is, can you get your ideas out of your head and in to the game... i'm working on it.

Early Access Review
I used to run a couple MC servers with nearly 100 mods installed on each, plus I've made some tweaks to existing mods, spendind thousands of hours, so I'll just compare (+/-) Creativerse to Minecraft, because it's basically a MC's descendant

+ beautiful consistent built-in graphics
+ very convenient harvesting/mining
+ resourceful crafting with detailed info
+ recipe learning/discovery
+ useful pets!!
+ better Survival experience
+ runs smoother
+ blueprints (although in a very basic state atm)
+ tons of tweaks which MC annoyingly lacks and force players to install tons of mods
(the list would be too long to go through)

- MC has got tons of items/recipes
- MC is more complex (redstone!, pistons etc etc.)
- unlimited MC world
- lots of MC mods allowing to construct factories, production lines and even basic computers(!) or just add anything else you'd imagine
- huge MC community with thousands of public servers (PVP, parkour, RPG)
- dedicated servers

If I were to compare VANILLA Minecraft to Creativerse, then I'd go with Creativerse. However what really makes MC a true breakthrough in the whole gaming genre is it's community (with mods and customizations). Creativerse is still in production, so it might come as an interesting alternative to MC one day, but definitely won't supercede it.
But should you play this game? Creativerse is well designed, has really entertaining gameplay, and it's free...so why not?

Early Access Review
In itself this is a good/solid and fun game... The comparison to Minecraft(to me personaly) is weak... One does not(simply) compare/call copy or clone Oddworld Abe's Oddysee to Dangerous Dave for being a platformer or Halo to Hexen for using first person view... It is just your age and recent memory... Does it lack in some aspects??? Sure it does... Does it have more in others??? Yes... But my point is to drop the Minecraft (that I did play for a period of time)... And just play Creativerse... But only if ti rocks your boat...
